Wairau River Family Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine offers and intense lifted nose of ripe tropical fruits and citrus. The wine is refined and elegant, displaying a finely textured palate with flavours of guava and stone fruit. Wonderfully expressive with a dry refreshing finish this wine is best savoured with high-jinks and convivial company.

Intense and complete on the nose with layers of grass, chilies, fresh zesty citrus fruit and dusty guava aromas. Big, rich and intense in the mouth. This is powerful and a bit dense with lots of follow-through. The succulent fruit is intense on the back end with grapefruit, guava and cut grass notes that are rich and fruity but not sweet. Really nice clarity on the palate. 88pts
